Are you tired of the same old same old on your Thanksgiving table? Has Your Christmas dinner gotten boring and so predictable you could just scream? There are recipes that we just have to make every year for the Christmas and Thanksgiving table. But some times we just want to change it up a bit.
For instance, in our house Christmas dinner just would not be complete without Hawaiian Coleslaw. I tried a salad one year and all I heard was “where was the coleslaw”. But when it comes to the main course we like to have prime rib one year and beef wellington the next and roast duck the following. So if you are feeling that daring urge to try something new. Here is some inspiration for the perfect dinner.
Let’s start with some awesome appetizers to ward off the grumbly tumblies.
Then an important place to start is the main dish. You could go with the tried and true turkey, but why not change it up a bit this year?
There is also so many great sides to choose from, that every discerning pallet can be satisfied.
How about a great soup to round out the meal. There’s always room for soup. One of the nice things about soup is it can be made ahead of time and help pull the whole meal together.
Don’t forget the bread! No Christmas and Thanksgiving table would be complete without bread. Whether sweet or savory. Bread in one form or another is always appreciated.
We would all be in big trouble if we forgot the desert! Even if we forgo it the rest of the year, it just wouldn’t be Christmas or Thanksgiving without a little of the sweet stuff. Here are a few ideas to help round out the meal.
And don’t forget breakfast! An easy breakfast is important for a big day of cooking, yet you still want it to be special. Our family likes something we can eat while opening presents. Hop out of bed and pop something in the oven. When the coffee is done it will be ready to enjoy as you open your gifts!
I hope this give you some “food for thought” and some new food for you Christmas and Thanksgiving Table.
From My Ducky House to yours, May you have a wonderful holiday, blessed with those you love, and lots of good food.
